Becoming a Don
Residence Don is a position held by upper-year undergraduate students. As a Don, you'll live in residence and help to develop a community that is supportive of the academic and personal goals of students. You will be a role model to approximately 30 students, encouraging residence activities and ensuring that residence policy is being followed. This is considered to be one of the most prestigious and rewarding leadership opportunities a student can have.
The day-to-day management of our Residence Life Program is handled by our Residence Manager. The Residence Manager is also responsible for the supervision and training of the Dons, building management, advising residents, and handling conduct and discipline issues.
Huron has two Head Dons who are generally in their third or fourth year of the university program. Head Dons are responsible for academic and social programming for residents. Head Dons provide support and leadership to the Dons and assist the Residence Manager with the day-to-day operations of the Residence Life Program.
A Don's primary responsibility is to foster a sense of community while assisting residents with their transition to university, enforcing residence policies, providing educational and community building programming, and advising students on how to have a positive, healthy and successful residence and university experience.
